> I receive RC2 encrypted mails from Thunderbird / Ubuntu does this mean there is an alternative which I may can use? Or why is it possible that this works with Ubuntu. Or is it just the decryption which does not work? So I would be able to send mails encrypted with RC2 but I can not decrypt any RC2 enrcypted mail?
I don't know why Mozilla uses RC2 at all. This algorithm is not only
patented but also obsolete for many years. Tell the senders to switch
to AES or Triple-DES.
